Planting Seeds

Unfortunately the sweet basil that I planted from the seeds I received in a box of Triscuits didn't survive. I should have put the pot up high where one of the cats couldn't get to it. I had been thinking about getting some seeds and starting over, when my mom came home with a herb garden starter kit. So, I decided why not give it another go. So far 5 out of 6 different herbs are growing nicely. The only one that isn't growing yet it the parsley. The sweet basil, sage, oregano, dill, and chives are growing nicely. I received some more seeds for Easter. These were baby's breath, cornflower, sunflowers, tomatoes, and zinnias. So far out of these the baby's breath, cornflower, and sunflowers are growing.
And then I decided that even though I had a lot of seeds to plant as it was to get even more seeds. So I picked out some seeds at Target-micro greens (rainbow blend), spinach, and scabiosa (summer berries mix). Out of these the only one that has sprout seedlings so far is the micro-greens. I am having fun watching my plants grow and hopefully the ones that haven't sprouted yet will do so soon. :) Anyone else growing some seeds? How are yours doing?
